Evelyn C. Bernard, 97, of Chatfield, Minn., died on Sunday, August 25, 2013 of natural causes at her home.

Evelyn Cecelia Kunerth was born on April 12, 1916 in Haverhill Twp., MN, to Henry and Clara (Eggler) Kunerth. She grew up on the family farm, attended rural school in Salem Corners and Byron H.S. and then worked on the family farm. Evelyn was married at Bethel Lutheran Church in Rochester, MN, to Arthur W. Bernard. Following their marriage the couple moved to Chatfield, where they owned and operated a stockyard for a number of years. They then started Chatfield Implement and Truck Sales which they operated for 35 years. In 1955, they bought the bus service in Chatfield and Bernard Bus Service continues today as a family run business. The Bernard family moved to rural Chatfield in 1957 where they farmed and sold Black Angus cattle, raised their family and lived for many years. Evelyn was a farmwife and homemaker and did the bookkeeping for the family businesses. Following their retirement, the couple moved to Wabasha in 1977. They enjoyed fishing together and Evelyn volunteered at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Wabasha. Mr. Bernard died in 1994 and Evelyn returned to Chatfield in 1995, where she continued to live in her own home. She was a longtime member of Chatfield Lutheran Church where she taught Sunday school and served as secretary-treasurer. She was a member of one of the knitting and quilting groups that served various church missions. Evelyn was known for her exceptional knitting skills and enjoyed teaching others in Chatfield, including her granddaughters and great granddaughters. She was always sharing knitted caps and scarves with family and many Chatfield residents and most recently was known for knitting and giving away her colorful striped socks! She enjoyed gardening, fishing, going on the Bernard Bus casino trip twice a month and following Minnesota Viking football. Evelyn loved time spent with family especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
